PRINCETON DEMOCRATIC COUNCIL CANDIDATE
MICHELLE PIRONE LAMBROS FILES BALLOT PETITIONS
PRINCETON, NJ (March 31, 2019) – Princeton Council Candidate Michelle Pirone Lambros announced today that she had submitted to the Princeton Municipal Clerk her petitions to appear on the June 4th Primary ballot.
Pirone Lambros submitted her petitions on Thursday, March 28. The deadline for candidates to file petitions to appear on the ballot for New Jersey’s June 4th primary is Monday, April 1.
“As an active Progressive Democrat and entrepreneur, I am the only candidate in the current field of council candidates with the financial skills, business acumen, and global perspective to provide Princeton with the leadership it needs at this pivotal moment in its future,” said Michelle Pirone Lambros.
A second-generation Italian American, Pirone Lambros’ ties to Princeton span more than a century, to when her grandfathers emigrated from Italy to help build Princeton University. Pirone Lambros said she is running for council to ensure that Princeton affords the same opportunities for the current and future generations as it did for her family.
“I have seen my extended family priced out of Princeton, I’ve watched McMansions replace our charming homes and I’ve witnessed our iconic small businesses close their doors for good,” Pirone Lambros said. “The erosion of Princeton’s economic diversity strikes a very deep chord with me and what is motivating me to run for council,” she said.
Pirone Lambros’ vision for Princeton includes negotiating a better deal for the community with Princeton University, revitalizing the local economy, and reducing the property tax burden on home owners through creative and public-private agreements.
“A thriving economy is essential to Princeton’s quality of life,” Pirone Lambros said. “It is key to our walkable and bikeable conveniences, to employment in our community, support of our nonprofit service providers and cultural institutions, and in helping to offset our residential property tax burden through commercial taxes,” she said. “As a proven entrepreneur with a history of public service, I have the skill set, aptitude, expertise and leadership skills to get things done,” she said.
Pirone Lambros has the support of the Princeton Community Democratic Organization (PCDO) and will appear in the Democratic column on the ballot.
“I am extremely honored to have the PCDO’s support for my candidacy and look forward to working with them toward a sustainable future for Princeton,” Pirone Lambros said.
